yet another file upload question... RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1494278837 posted

    running windows server 2008 SP2 - 64 bit -- IIS 7.5

    I need to upload a file just over 100MB.


     <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="2000000000" executionTimeout="1000000" requestLengthDiskThreshold="2000000000" />

    also did:

    appcmd set config "GADOIDMA" - section:requestFiltering - requestLimiots.maxAllowedContentLength:2000000000 - commitpath: apphost

     I am geeting the traditional error:  System.Web.Httpexception: Maximum request length exceeded

    Httpexception (0x80004005): Maximum request length exceeded.


    Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.0.30319


    ALL the articles i read seem to point to these two entries as a solution to the problem but not form me.  where else do you recommend i should Look.

    What is the value of maxAllowedContentLength?

    If not set, try

             <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="157286400" />


    Not sure about your command but there is a typo in requestLimiots (instead of requestLimits). Anyway, try to set it in in the web.config
